Arctic mosaic on Red Lion Street, London

The diamond shapes in ‘The Enterprise’ are actually pieces of mirror so it sparkles very nicely in the sunshine. The Enterprise (as well as being a nice pub) was “19th century sailing ship that travelled to the Arctic in search of the missing explorer Sir John Franklin in 1852” (From the artist, Tessa Hunkin’s, website).

I wonder if she is related to the engineer / cartoonist, Tim Hunkin? I noticed she also works with light / electronics as well as doing mosaics.
